Ink. Stamp. Share. February Showcase Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share. February Showcase Blog Hop as we share the projects we are currently working on. You will have the opportunity to visit with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
Today I am sharing a sympathy card I created with products from the 2021 Sale-a-bration Catalog. I love the gorgeous Oh So Ombre 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #155225) and I paired a piece of the Blackberry Bliss paper with the images from the Corner Bouquet stamp set (item #155273) and the sentiment from the Heal Your Heart stamp set (item #155291). I love that you can earn each of these exclusive products free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration. They are so versatile and I have been having so much fun creating projects with them.

Sympathy cards are never easy to create and I love that the beautiful images in Corner Bouquet stamp set have a serene feel to them that works well for this type of card. The font for the sentiments in the Heal Your Heart are so elegant and work beautifully with the Corner Bouquet stamp set to create a classically beautiful design with the pretty Blackberry Bliss Ombre Designer Series Paper. I heat embossed the sentiment and floral image with White Embossing Powder to step up the design and I added two of the small dragonflies to the card front that I colored with Clear Wink Of Stella for a touch of shimmer. The small Basic Pearls finish off the card design beautifully as accents for the small dragonflies. I colored a piece of Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with the Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blends Marker and added it to the bottom of the card front as a contrast to the White embossing. For the inside of the card, I stamped the floral image twice in the bottom left and top right of the Basic White layer using Blackberry Bliss Classic ink to coordinate with the card front. I love the simplicity of this card design and I feel like it has a peaceful feel to it that is comforting.
